How to eject your Kindle (so it keeps charging) in Linux

Ejecting your Kindle reading device is different from ‘unmounting’ because it allows you to keep using the reader while it charges over USB. In most distros, you’ll need the command-line to achieve this. Here’s how.

First, find out where your device is mounted:

fdisk -l

Then, use the ‘eject’ command

sudo eject /dev/sdb1
